Transplanted Texans, rejoice: the Alamo’s dropped its price again

18 Pinecroft is now down to  $6 million. Owners paid $6.5 million for it when it was new in 2004 and piled still more money into it fitting it out. I think it’s a great house, but you have to get past its exterior to appreciate that, and the original asking price 400 days ago of $7.250 made that harder to do.

(It occurs to me that if a Russian comes along and buys this at an even-further-reduced price, we can say it was reduced to ruble)

    It appears that once, perhaps in 1992, a container of yogurt was opened in that kitchen.

      Never ceases to amaze on sellers approval of listing agents taking such shitty photos and videos. Natural light steaming into those oversize windows would make that man cave a whole heck of a lot more appealing. Good thing its not my house, as the listing agent would have my bootprints on their ass.

    It looks more like a hotel or a corporate retreat place than a home, given the furnishings and all the separate seating areas.

      Unfortunately, Greenwich has become a ‘builders monument’ town. A million square feet of overbuilt never to be properly utilized space.
